It’s so easy! Being a responsible network user at FIU is as
easy as 1,2,3!
Follow these simple guidelines:
• Use strong passwords. Choose passwords that
are difficult or impossible to guess but easy to
remember. Give a different password to each
account you have. For example, do not use the
same password for PantherSoft as what you would
use for your Facebook or Twitter accounts. Never
write passwords down or share them with others.
• Make regular backups of critical data on your
computer. Imagine losing research material or
papers that you have spent hours working on. This
can be easily avoided by making sure that you
frequently back up the data on your computer.
• Use virus protection software. That means three
things: (1) having it on your computer in the first
place (FIU offers free antivirus software for all
students at shoputs.fiu.edu; (2) configuring your
antivirus software to automatically check for new
virus signature updates daily, and (3) configuring
your antivirus software to automatically scan all the
files on your system at least once a week.
• Use a personal firewall as a gatekeeper between
your computer and the Internet. Firewalls are
usually software. They are essential for any
computers that connect to a network.
